It's a rare feeling to love a bar as soon as you walk through the door. With its quiet charm, Beatnik, a new Station North bar, delivered it almost immediately on a recent Saturday night. Beatnik's precisely executed details, both small and significant, left a lasting impression. For a bar that opened in mid-July, it seemed confident, like its owners were fully committed to creating a cool, unpretentious hangout for Station North art types. But you don't need to be a regular at Club K or the Crown, both music venues close to Beatnik, to appreciate what's going on here.

Jack's Bistro is hosting a Stillwater Ales dinner on Thursday night. There's still room left. The dinner doesn't appear to be an official Baltimore Beer Week event, or at least it's not showing up on the BBW website. But it sounds like a can't-miss event for fans of Brian Strumke (the brewer), Ted Stelzenmuller (the chef), or just a good time. Strumke says he's bringing a Chardonnay-barrel Stateside , wine-barrel Our Side (Mikkeller collaboration), bourbon-barrel Existen , Import Series v4 Rule of Thirds and a wine-barrel Cellar Door . The $65 dinner will include five food-and-beer pairings.  The dinner begins at 6 p.m., and there is limited seating.

Et tu, U2?When the Irish rock act U2 announced the schedule for its first U.S. tour in five years late Monday evening, local fans may have noticed that Baltimore and Washington were not among the band's destinations.Albany, N.Y., Austin, Texas, and Hartford, Conn., are included on the itinerary, as well two shows in Los Angeles, two in the Boston area and three in or around New York City. But the 32-concert tour -- which begins Feb. 29 in Lakeland, Fla. -- gets no closer to our neck of the woods than a March 7 show at the Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Va., and a March 10 date at the Philadelphia Spectrum.

Eden St. until one of the building's residents found her, said Officer Sabrina V. Tapp-Harper, a department spokeswoman."I was really shocked for it to happen in this neighborhood," said Constance Crum, 57, who lives across the street from the building where the rape occurred.

Let the people, not the media, decide on gamingOn June 3, I was extremely upset that your newspaper passed off an editorial as front-page news. On June 6, I was shocked when the broken record showed up in the editorial column, where it belonged.To imply that there is some kind of conspiracy with the racing industry trying to compete with neighboring states on a level playing field was wrong. This country was founded on free, unrestricted trade.There were two other angles to this same story: One, the medical industry outspent the racing industry in lobbying expenses, 2-1. That was a fact only good enough for the continuation page of your biased report.

Concert pavilion would be a plus for South CarrollAfter reading some of the semi-hysterical responses it has drawn, (Letters to the editor, Dec. 1), I'm a little confused: Is Cellar Door Productions proposing to put a concert pavilion in the Sykesville Springfield Hospital complex or a Supermax prison?The horrific picture that letter-writer Kathleen L. Homeman paints is a "hide the women and children" scenario of mass riots, rampant drug use and miles and miles of traffic gridlock, eventually exploding into an Armageddon-like street revolution, and presumably, the end of the civilized world as she envisions it.I've been to many concerts at Merriweather Post Pavilion over the years, and I have attended a couple at the Cellar Door Productions-run Nissan Pavilion, near Manassas, Va. If those sort of nightmarish scenes have been enacted there, I am certainly not aware of them.
